About Get Conscious Now

A spring board for humanitarians who are waking up to their power to consciously create.  An inspirational talk show on Women’s Radio, hosted by two dynamic women, Patricia Diorio and Patty DeDominic, experts in their respective coaching fields of spirituality and business.  The show speaks to a shift as people become conscious of their true nature, as spiritual beings having a human experience.

This conversation is being significantly substantiated by the scientific community through the work of quantum physicists and scientists from all branches of science.  Reflected in movies like The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know?, what it means to be conscious is now beginning to impact every sector of society.

Get Conscious Now!, is dedicated to exploring the many shifting paradigms that are occurring today within this conversation, offering a wide range of today’s most compelling topics.  In addition to science and spirituality, the show also addresses what it means to be conscious in the areas of business, finance, health, medicine, politics, the arts and more.  The guests interviewed are leading experts in their respective fields of expertise.  Although the subject matter is varied, the common thread for all guests is their belief that there is a shaft that is occurring today in the fundamental belief structure of society, where consciousness rather than the material world is the ground of all being or the place from which all life arises.  This new way of perceiving the world goes way beyond the ‘bottom line’ as we know it.
